I'm impressed, Blaine. It must be nice to be that handy.

Thanks guys! It's very warm sounding overall, I personally think it's too warm. Anyways Sean, it plays like a champ, but I think I could have sanded the nut just a little lower. I built it from scrap. Just buying everything separately, Keith.

Nice job, Blaine. Looks good. Was it from a kit? Which one?

Beautiful.  How does it play?

That's a sweet looking strat.  I like the paint job.  It's kinda Eddie Van Halen-ish.  Reminds me of a telecaster I built many years ago.

Advice re abusive boyfriend of ex

My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years.  After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together.  She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together.  She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin.  Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
